I first came across Apophyllite in a delightful little shop in Joshua Tree. I was in town for a camping trip and stumbled into a clothing slash odd's and end's store while thrifting. The sweetest lady worked there and we had so much fun gabbing about all the different crystals she had. I bought an amazing labradorite palm stone for myself and promised to come back whenever I was in town.
On my most recent visit, we chatted about Apophyllite, so let me fill you in!
Apophyllite is a sparkly stone that is often found in pastel colors like green, coral, white, grey, clear, yellow and pink.
It can be found all around the world in places like Nova Scotia, Iceland, Greenland, Scotland, Brazil, Canada, and even in the United States as well!
It is often discovered in clusters which is why so many pieces have beautiful pyramid covered faces. These prismatic crystals tend to grow within other Zeolite minerals (meaning they become intertwined), but can also be found individually.
Are you dealing with mental fog, nervous anxiety, fatigue, or maybe even trouble controlling your patience? I've got a crystal for that!
Apophyllite works to rebalance your vibe and aid you in healing.
Its metaphysical properties focus on releasing stress and negative thought patterns so you can make room to bring lightness and happiness in your life. This stone can also help with mental blocks so you can see the truth and then act on it.
Furthermore, this stone is often used to tap into your third eye (throat chakra). If your third eye is feeling unbalanced or you're looking to connect to it on a deeper level, Apophyllite can be of great aid to you. Let it help you get reconnected with yourself.
Sit with it when you are looking for assistance on making a decision.
If you feel like you've lost your way, place the apophyllite somewhere you can see it, whether that be somewhere at home, at work, or another special place. Give it a light sage and then tell it what you want it to do for you. Maybe that involves being more relaxed, to clear your mind of negative thoughts, to fill the room with peace and love. Whatever your preference is, state it out loud and then leave it. Let it serve as a trigger to you to think of that intention whenever you see it.
